Paper Abstract

High average power Nd-YAG lasers in the multi-kilowatt are reviewed. The different configurations multi-rod, multi-slab, tube in various resonator set-ups are discussed in detail with respect to maximum output power, efficiency, and beam quality. The 3 kW-Nd-YAG laser under investigation in the lab and the planned 5 kW system are briefly presented.
